Please ensure that if you request prescriptions via online access, that you have already informed the surgery of your nominated choice of pharmacy to electronically send your prescription to.
Please ring Reception to obtain your PIN number to enable you to request your prescriptions online.
Please be aware that the doctors will not prescribe medication which can be bought over the counter, such as paracetamol, ibuprofen and cough medicine.
Please note we cannot accept repeat prescriptions over the telephone or by email. Please use teh online prescription request facility.
You can either request a prescription using our online service, drop your repeat slip into a local pharmacy. Remember to allow up to 72 hours (3 working days) for your prescription to be ready. This may be longer if you do not use a local pharmacy nand use an internet based company, so it is best to ensure you request your repeat medication one week in advance.
We now send all prescriptions electronically to your nominated pharmacy using the EPS service. Please advise the surgery of which pharmacy you would like to use and all of your prescriptions will automatically be sent there electronically, meaning you no longer have to visit the surgery to pick up your prescription.
You must allow 72 hours before collecting your scripts, but if there are special circumstances we will always try to accommodate where at all possible. If you want a medication that is not currently on your repeat script or have not used a medication for a long time, the GP may be not able to issue it to you without a routine review or telephone call.
Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a doctor, nurse practitioner, practice nurse or clinical pharmacist at least once a year to review these regular medications and notification should appear on your repeat slip. You may be asked to do a blood test before your review.
It is a good idea to ensure you are aware of your annual medication review date so you can book an appropriate appointment in advance to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions. If you are not aware of when your medication review is due, please feel free to ask at reception.
